CCA Lagos and Triangle Arts Trust are organising the first Triangle Workshop at Stone House in Alakuko, Lagos and are inviting application from artists working in all disciplines.
The two-week workshop will bring together a group of artists working in various disciplines to share ideas, experiences and to make new work inspired by the context and the opportunity to work alongside other artists. Approximately 18 artists will participate in the workshop, half from Nigeria and the rest from other countries in Africa and further afield. During the workshop participants will also be invited to present their work to each other and to the public. The workshop will end with an Open Day, when the public will join the artists in celebrating the outcome of the two weeks.
The workshop will provide the successful applicants with full lodging and food, working space, local transportation and a small material stipend. International artists will be able to apply to have their international travel covered by the workshop.
